I have been working at Marriott Vacation Club

Pros

The benefits are solid, with an excellent vacation package and several holidays given off. Overall, the company does value its associates for the most part.

Cons

While there are some very talented associates at the company, there are some who have been promoted into positions for which they are not really qualified. With the economic downturn and lay-offs, office politics has gotten a tad nasty.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would help to flatten the organizational structure some. While several of the senior leaders try to make themselves accessable, many in middle management and junior executive roles are barriers to the communications that the senior leaders really need to be hearing, and to project efficiency as a whole.

    I worked at Marriott Vacation Club

    Pros

    The people are awesome!!! The only reason that I wanted to go to work everyday was to see my co-workers. They were very friendly and helpful in those seemingly stressful situations. Needed equipment was available to do your best job.

    Cons

    Management is very mediocre. Most managers seemed to have no knowledge of the hourly positions they were managing. They would rather have you do the hard work while they chatted all day on the phone about personal business. Favoritism is a very strong suit here. No matter how hard you worked they always tried to push you to run that extra mile, or 5, while your lazy co-workers seemed to have less to do and greater pay on a seniority basis. The accounting staff has seemingly no knowledge of overtime pay laws. Bonuses from management were continuously promised with no return. You could always expect to do some of the managers dirty work without appreciation. No organization as far as supplies go. Possible promotion opportunities involved taking over half of the managers paperwork with a $0.25 pay raise. The benefits are terrible! You pay on average $360.00 a month for yourself and your dependants. If you have a spouse then forget about it unless you can afford another $50.00 a week to spend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the position you are managing. Learn how to get your hands wet when you have no one to cover a shift. Stop showing favoritism towards the most knowledgeable associate. Quit running your employees to the breaking point just because you don't understand their positions. Learn time management and show some appreciation towards the people that work the hardest. Put up realistic quota goals. Don't make false pay promises to get your hard working employees to continue working for the peanuts you are authorized to pay. And don't throw your employees business around to their associates or your friends that manage other departments. Keep personal feelings, and employee warnings confidential.
